Corona crisis: POLOLO production goes on
Responsibility, solidarity and flexible solutions are now more important than ever
The official classification by the World Health Organization (WHO) of infections with the so-called corona virus (SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19) as a pandemic has resulted in major challenges for consumers, retailers and also for us as manufacturers. At present, it is not possible to estimate how long this difficult phase will last. We at POLOLO are in favour of working together in solidarity in order to overcome this crisis together and hopefully be able to return to normal everyday life soon. We wish our retailers and end customers all the best – a stable health or rapid recovery and a successful return to normality.
POLOLO Online Shop: Open around the clock even in times of crisis
Since foundation, POLOLO has made the preservation of small and medium-sized retailers a central concern, because the many years of experience of specialist trader are very valuable, helpful and inspiring! Without retail trade our streets and city centres will become boring – so we wish our POLOLO specialist dealers all the best. Please also show solidarity with the small retailers! After all, the closure of the shops does not necessarily mean that there will be no deliveries from all of them. Please ask your local dealer if he does offer delivery services! You will find a list of our retailers on the POLOLO website. Many of them have clever ideas on how to supply their small and large customers – with deliveries by cargo bikes, e-bikes etc.
A few years ago we established our POLOLO Online Shop, which enables our end customers in particular, who live far away from a POLOLO retailer, to select and order suitable POLOLOs as easily as possible. This means that now there is also an opportunity for all those who currently have an acute need for shoes for the little ones, but for known reasons cannot visit a shoe shop, this webshop is available around the clock for information and orders.
Cancellation of stock sale in Oberreichenbach – temporary closure of the Berlin ShowRoom
The health of our customers and employees is very important to us, which is why we would also like to avoid the coming together of larger groups in our environment as far as possible. We have therefore cancelled the stock sale that was originally planned for March 28th, 2020 at our manufactory in Oberreichenbach (Franconia).
Of course, we very much hope that the situation will soon return to normal and that we can then set a catch-up date. We have also suspended the opening hours of our ShowRoom in Berlin until further notice – we will wait and see how things develop and inform you on our website as soon as a new situation arises.
